“Director General, Vigilance will investigate the corruption charges going viral on social media involving the son of Chairman, Haryana Staff Selection Commission and others,” said Khattar in the Assembly. “The State Vigilance Bureau would complete its investigation within a month and strict action will be taken against those found guilty,” he added. The INLD members led by Abhay Singh Chautala and Congress MLAs led by Kiran Choudhry raised the issue in the state Assembly today also.
